Editorial Reviews


?The authors have succeeded perfectly in selecting 30 of the most important natural products from the large number of known ones, and in presenting their structure elucidation in an especially attractive form.? ( Angewandte Chemistry, September 2009)

From the Back Cover

About this book:
- Six chapters describe 30 natural products with their isolation and full spectroscopic details: Alkaloids/Aromatic Compounds/Dyestuffs/Carbohydrates/Terpenoids/Miscellaneous
- A background tells stories of the history and culture of each compound and its natural source.
- All chemical isolations are explained as principles of action and given as methods with full descriptions.
- The full set of UV, CD, IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, COSY, NOESY,
HSQC, HMBC and mass spectra are depicted and discussed in detail.

Taken from the Endorsement by DIETER SEEBACH:

... Thus, this unusual book is a combination of many: a laboratory-course book, a spectroscopy text, a contribution of the history of natural products, of chemistry, and of plant biology, and even a lab book all in one - The book is a scholarly masterpiece, didactically perfect, with beautiful colour pictures and graphic arts. Besides its practical importance for students and young chemical scientists, the book is a pleasure to read and can be used as a reference for the organic and biological chemist, indeed for any person interested in chemistry, life sciences, medicine, sociology, history and belles lettres.

Format: Paperback
This book is a fantastic collection of articles on the history, extraction, and spectroscopic identification of 30 natural products, including things like eugenol (clove oil), indigo, THC, and menthol. Each chapter includes the history of the natural product that the compound is isolated from, a laboratory method for extracting and purifying the substance, and detailed UV-VIS, IR, NMR, and mass spectra. The authors walk through the process of identifying the compounds and assigning each signal in all the NMR spectra in great detail. Each chapter ends with a set of questions on the nuance of the science, and answers are included in the back.
The book is lavishly illustrated in full color throughout, and includes relevant passages from authors ranging from classical antiquity to modern times. The literary passages are given in the original languages in the chapters, and translations are provided in the back.
The book is what a science textbook should be: engagingly well written, informative, and interesting. The book is written for chemists, and a thorough knowledge of organic chemistry will certainly help in understanding the procedures and spectra. However, the history sections can certainly be understood by anyone with a basic science education. This is a true classic that any chemist interested in natural products should have.
